HOW WELL DO YOUR NEIGHBOURS KNOW YOUR BUSINESS?
How well do your neighbours really know your business? Could you be improving the footfall that you receive from local and in-destination word-of-mouth? Or collaborating more effectively with complimentary businesses in your area and in doing so, raise your profile to reach new or pivoted audiences?
SSDA have delivered a series of Product Awareness webinars to help us all get to know each other a little bit better. These are opportunities for our members to tell our tourism colleagues about their business / event or offering. We feel that it is a vital tool to understand what there is to do and see in the South of Scotland and to encourage collaboration and referrals which in turn will maximise the spend and stay of a visitor in the South if Scotland and work together to drive the South of Scotland to a leading and first-class tourism destination.
